We’ve received confirmation that Juan Carlos Pagan, who’s spent the last two-and-a-half years as head of design at DDB New York, is leaving the agency at week’s end. No word yet, though, on where Pagan’s headed to next, but the creative has pulled double duty as he also serves as partner/CD of his own Brooklyn-based design studio, Pagan & Sharp. During his time at DDB NY, Pagan has worked on several outdoor/print efforts for New York Lottery among other accounts.
Prior to DDB, Pagan (part of the ADC Young Guns class of 2013) spent a few years as as an art director of what was then G2 and served in a similar role at MTV. No word yet on if there are plans to replace the creative.
